Allen Kalpin, MD, practices and teaches ISTDP in Ontario, Canada. He also practices addiction medicine. He is a founder, past president, and current board member of the International Experiential Dynamic Therapy Association (IEDTA) and past president of the (Canadian) General Practice Psychotherapy Association (GPPA). He has published many articles on ISTDP and has taught at EDT and ISTDP conferences and workshops in France, Spain, Italy, Denmark, the United States, and Canada.
Although the word “mindfulness” has so far not much been used in ISTDP literature, mindfulness is central to successful ISTDP practice.
“When trying to understand why therapy is not progressing, we can often be aware that we have not sufficiently used our knowledge and techniques in therapy, but even attention to these factors can be problematic. The problem is that the focus on any preconceived agenda can distract us from being present and responsive in the moment. An orientation toward the achievement of a therapeutic goal can overshadow the experience of compassion, empathy, and human connection.”
“When watching any effective ISTDP session we can see that they have one thing in common: Both the therapist and the patient are focused on experience in the present moment.”
Using audiovisually recorded vignettes from psychotherapy sessions Dr. Kalpin will demonstrate how skills and techniques will be most effective when they are applied in the context of a relationship in which both people are as experientially and mindfully present as possible.

Insecure attachment and problems in the client’s life and therapy – How can the therapist help to resolve the problems?
Clinical aspects and treatment outcome
At this conference, Dr. Neborsky will demonstrate the technique of Attachment Based Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (AB-ISTDP), a form of therapy that relies heavily on the research and method of Dr. Habib Davanloo, whose research on psychiatric outpatients demonstrated how accessing unconscious affects (“unlocking the unconscious”) early in the course of dynamic psychotherapy accelerates and deepens the therapeutic process, ensuring a favorable outcome. Dr. Davanloo also recognized the importance of maintaining a secure attachment bond between the client and therapist, similar to the bond between the child and the caregiver, and its importance for the adult’s mental health.
Dr. Robert Neborsky will present video-filmed vignettes from psychotherapy sessions (subtitled in English) of his adaptation of Davanloo’s method, and demonstrate how the therapist can help clients improve their adult attachment, from insecure states toward secure forms of adult attachment.
